let there be Marshall
Philip.S, 16.05.2020
the gain goes from completely clean to AC/DC. it really shines when it's completely gunned and run through an attenuator. also really loves a tubescreamer or some high output pickups. looks beautiful, sounds beautiful and is lighter and smaller than most heads. it really competes with more expensive heads and I really like it.


the footswitch is kind of dumb, the cable is REALLY, unnecessarily, long and you can't switch it to something reasonable. it's also required to run the FX loop

Finally found my amp.
Mellotronic, 22.02.2020
Hi there, just a very quick notice on the ORIGIN 50 head that I've recently acquired. First off all, I'd like to mention that I am one of those lads getting older and wealthy enough to buy gear that I like. This means that when it does not suits my needs, either it goes back to Thomann or straight on second hand market. I am basically a studio warrior (whenever my job and familly let me) with I guess an acquired taster for things that sounds neat. This amp is the pinacle of what I was looking for: a mid gain, loud and pedal friendly full tube amp. I actually own Orange, Fender and even Boss gears (dark terror, tweed deluxe and Katana 212), I've played lots of Marshall through the years and I know what to expect from a decent amp: versatility, lots of headroom and balanced with my guitar collection. This one gets everything! regarding the pros, the amp is very loud, simple to tune and gets that sizzling Marshallesque sound from 70's (think of Mick Ronson's 200). it literally loves pedals and Les paul's classic 57's but does also a great job with P90 and Telecaster's PUs. The cons, well, it is very loud even with the 5W attenuator, this beast must be tamed for studio and bedroom usage (the Harley Benton's passive attenuator is the way to go). Some will complain about the lack of a built in reverb, but we all know that built in reverbs are usually lame (either DSP or "faux spring") if you want a spacier sound, just plug your best reverb in the effect loop and there you go... For a bit more of 400euros with a decent power attenuator, you cannot be wrong.

Review after a few months use
John Gilbride, 04.04.2020
Having used this head both for jamming with bands and in tracks I have produced, I can honestly say that it is fantastic. I play a wide range of music, from Steely Dan style jazz rock to Meshuggah style low tuned metal.
Its clean to moderate crunching tones are delicious, the way it breaks up is incredibly pleasing, and when you stick a Les Paul in front of it, the magic starts to happen, chuck on that bridge pickup, and you're set.
Its not a high gain modern metal amp, but with determination, a graphic eq pedal and a cheap OD pedal, Ive been able to get to perform pretty much the way I want to, but with it's own unique character going on.
Pros: Its packed full of tone, SUPER LOUD, and has enough little features in it to be quite versatile.

Cons: It does take a lot of experimentation and getting used to the controls to dial in your tones exactly the way you want to, and it is a little heavy.

The Marshall Origin 50H Head
John Arg, 02.06.2021
You have to buy this amp. As simple as that. 50 watts with the Marshall logo for that price?! It's crazy not to get it. And the tone is sooo sweet and has the plexi character!
It probably has one of the best eq sections I've heard on a Marshall, with the presence and tilt controls being magic! If you need a gainy amp look elsewhere, but if you're a pedal user, just buy this. It takes pedals like a champ! Probably Marshall's equivalent to Fender's hot rod deluxe in terms of a pedal platform amp. I couldn't be happier with my purchase and can't find any cons really.
As always, great service and fast shipping by Thomann!
